    Exclamation Marxist Chicago DA drops all felony charges in gang shootout: "they were mutual combatants".

    Well, good to know that...if I ever have to clip somebody, I'll just say we were "mutual combatants".

    It's also a joy to see Foxx and Lightfoot at each other throats.

    Maybe they will end up "mutual combatants".

    I could not think of more positive karmic justice than the idea of these two thoroughly loathsome and despicable human beings, offing each other in a gunfight.




    Prosecutors reject charges against 5 suspects in deadly gang-related gunfight in Austin: ‘It’s just like the Wild West’

    The suspects are members of two warring factions of the Four Corner Hustlers street gang who allegedly shot it out Friday morning in the 1200 block of North Mason Avenue, where more than 70 shell casings were found.

    UPDATE: Lightfoot warns city could be sent ‘into chaos’ after Kim Foxx’s latest decision to reject charges

    Five men linked to a deadly gang-related shootout Friday in Austin were released from custody after prosecutors declined to charge each of them with a pair of felonies, including first-degree murder, the Chicago Sun-Times has learned.

    The brazen mid-morning gunfight, which left one shooter dead and two of the suspects wounded, stemmed from an internal dispute between two factions of the Four Corner Hustlers street gang, according to an internal police report and a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation.

    The source said police sought to charge all five suspects with murder and aggravated battery. By Sunday morning, a Chicago police spokeswoman acknowledged the suspects had “been released without charges.”

    In a statement later Sunday, Cristina Villareal, a spokeswoman for the Cook County state’s attorney’s office, explained that prosecutors had “determined that the evidence was insufficient to meet our burden of proof to approve felony charges.” Police officials agreed with the decision, Villareal added.

    While she wouldn’t specify what other evidence prosecutors needed to file charges, the police report acknowledged that victims of the shootout weren’t cooperating with investigators.

    But the report also framed the state’s attorney’s office’s decision to decline charges in a different light: “Mutual combatants was cited as the reason for the rejection.” Mutual combat is a legal term used to define a fight or struggle that two parties willingly engage in.

    I thought they had gun laws there.

    They must only apply to white people. Either that, or somebody died in a slingshot shootout.

    Does this mean dueling is legal again in Chicago?
    There is nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency, but a globalism where free trade is competitively subsidized by each nation, a continuous trade war is dictated by the WTO, and the single currency is pure fiat, fear is justified. That type of globalism is destined to collapse into economic despair, inflationism and protectionism and managed by resurgent militant nationalism.

    Bump.

    I approve of this DA’s decision. Let them work out their own issues. It will eventually sort itself out and save resources.

    I love it when the evening news reports someone getting shot by one of these shootouts and always feel the need to mention the kid in their bedroom was "not the intended target" As if that makes some kind of difference

    The situations in Chicago IL and Arlington TX are sufficiently similar (and similarly symptomatic) that I'll just put this here:

    Such a conundrum. Almost seems like she has a point. Kind of an "offsetting penalties" situation.

    Gang members shooting other gang members. Hard to sort that out. Both sides probably claim self defense.

    GoFundMe removed it, like they did for the Rittenhouse fundraisers.

    They only managed to collect $150 (which was refunded) in 24 hours.

    I guess (at least some) people can stomach only so much hypocrisy.
